Ohio attorney, Karen Taylor, 50, was arrested Monday and charged with a crime

A caregiver in Ohio was arrested for allegedly dumping hot water on a disabled woman she cared for, thereby destroying her victim.

Karen Taylor, 50, worked for 11 years as home help and caretaker for the 34-year-old victim at her residence in North College Hill.

On August 17, Taylor reportedly threw a cup of boiling hot water at the victim's head, causing burns to the left of the victim's neck.

It is not clear why she threw the cup in the first place.

She was arrested on Monday and charged with a crime.

The police call the water dump incident a & # 39; horrible & # 39; crime.

& # 39; It's an abuse, and I'd categorize it as horrible, & # 39; Detective Craig Chaney said WLWT.

Taylor is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $ 40,000 bond pending trial.

The victim lived in a building owned by the Hamilton County Housing Network, which concludes a contract with Hamilton County Development Disabilities Services to provide housing to county residents in need, according to Cincinnati Inquirer.

Taylor was employed by a company called RMS at the time of the attack.

The North College Hill police were tipped off about the alleged abuse after the Colerain Township police responded to an incident at an activity center for people with disabilities and employees noticed something had happened to the victim.

Harrowing photos of her injuries shows red spots from the left side of her neck to the back, including some blisters.

& # 39; She said it hurt, clear, burned. She just commented that & # 39; my staff hurt me & # 39 ;, Chaney said.

Investigators discovered that the victim had sustained other injuries, but were unsure whether they had been inflicted by Taylor.

Witnesses confirmed to the police that Taylor was throwing hot water from the tap.

& # 39; It gives me a good feeling that we have closed the case. At this point, we could name a suspect, get a suspect arrested, & Chaney said.
